Montreal Again?

Just returned from ANOTHER trip to Montreal. Of course I also bought two more huge bags of yarn from La Bobineuse de Laine. They actually wind up the yarns you want there so that you end up with a totally original plied yarn. I bought cottons galore again and avoided their acrylic which is a fiber I just hate. It feels like plastic or the petroleum it's made from. I wish they had wools in stock.

I have no photos today because I'm too busy finishing up the crocheted jewelry that Lark Books requested. That was another great benefit of selling on Etsy. And no, I still haven't heard back from Teen Magazine, but neither have they returned my knitwear, so I'm still hoping.

By the way, on this Montreal trip it took THREE HOURS waiting at customs while they opened and searched EVERYONE'S car trunk. I do like being safe, but boy, what a drag! Previously it never even felt like going to another country when visiting Canada. I wonder what the customs agent thought about the giant bags of yarn?
